7:34 am
backpacks, 30 pounds of sand, goes through a gauntlet on a frozen lake and is repeatedly tackled to the grounds, knocked unconscious. what is terrible here is not just that, but they bring him into a house. they do not call the police. do not get medical attention. they call someone from the fraternity who was then instructing him, change his clothes. get rid of all the fraternity paraphernalia. they look up what the symptoms are. it takes them over an hour to get the boy to the hospital. the injuries of blunt forced trauma are devastating to read. >> yeah, it says repeated traunl ma to the head, torso, thighs, that the forces were significant and severe. the charge is third degree murder. what does that mean and why is it so rare? >> it is rare we see a murder indictment in these kind of cases. what we have seen, which actually surprised me, is if you go back and look at hazing
7:35 am
deaths, there really are more than one a year. and it goes back all the way to the 1,800s. >> what is third degree murder? >> third degree murder is what we think more of in new york and other places like involuntary manslaughter. you intend an act, say you give someone drug. you don't intend their death. so what the consequences are was not intended. this is a hazing rich warm. these have gone on for decades. >> this seems to be unprecedented. what is really interesting is all 37 members face charges. five of them these murder charges. this prosecutor took a couple years, is he trying to send a real message here? >> she and the grand jury is. the prosecutor was smart. he didn't go ahead and indict them. he let a grand jury sift through it. they did it painstakingly to decide who did what. so the wrongful death suit brought by the parents can then be amended to see who are the five who are really the

on aspirin could change everything. how it could fight two deadly health threats and which age groups could benefit the most, coming up next on cbs, we'll be right back. vo: today's the day. more and more people with type 2 diabetes are learning about long-acting levemir®. as my diabetes changed, it got harder to control my blood sugar. today, i'm asking about levemir®. vo: levemir® is an injectable insulin that can give you blood sugar control for up to 24 hours. and levemir® helps lower your a1c. levemir® lasts 42 days without refrigeration. that's 50% longer than lantus®,
8:09 am
which lasts 28 days. levemir® comes in flextouch, the latest in insulin pen technology from novo nordisk. levemir® is a long-acting insulin used to control high blood sugar in adults and children with diabetes and is not recommended to treat diabetic ketoacidosis. do not use levemir® if you are allergic to any of its ingredients. the most common side effect is low blood sugar, which may cause symptoms such as sweating, shakiness, confusion, and headache. severe low blood sugar can be serious and life-threatening. ask your doctor about alcohol use, operating machinery, or driving. other possible side effects include injection site reactions. tell your doctor about all medicines you take and all of your medical conditions. check your blood sugar. your insulin dose should not be changed without asking your doctor. get medical help right away if you have trouble breathing, sweating, extreme drowsiness, swelling of your face, tongue, or throat, dizziness, or confusion. today's the day to ask about levemir® flextouch. covered by most health insurance and medicare plans.

in our "morning ro in our morning rounds a double dose of potentially life saving health from aspirin, it's recommend to help both cardiovascular disease and some types of cancer. our doctor, a cardiologist right here in new york city joins us at the table. so why is this recommendation such a big deal and who actually benefits. >> we have known about the benefit of aspirin in terms of secondary prevention for people mo have already had a heart attack and stroke. the question is does it prevent
8:13 am
heart attack and stroke in everyone who hasn't had one. there's been all sorts of guidelines that were very confusings. now comes this task force who have reviewed the most up to date evidence and they are coming up with recommendations to help prevent first heart attack and stroke. for people aged 50 to 59, they have the biggest benefit, if they have a 10% increased rick or more of heart attack and stroke in the next ten years, they don't have excessive bleeding, that's the biggest benefit. there is also a benefit for people from 60 to 69 but the benefit is smaller. >> so this is for colon cancer specifically. >> exactly. >> what dosages are they
8:14 am
expecting? >> the dosages are fromm 81 milligrams to 350 milligrams. but the colon cancer aspect is important to point out. the evidence to date is really just for colon cancer and you have to take the aspirin for more than ten years to start seeing the benefits of decreasing your risk of colon cancer and decrease your risk of skying from colon cancer. there are cardiologists who differ in their recommendations and are worried that this the will worry people who are already taking aspirin. >> dr. tara, really interesting. and one researcher is proving

done at duke university. you know about computer networks together. how about brains? the research could revolutionize medicine by healing people with severe disabilities. inside the lab attempting what others call impossible. jeff, good morning. >> charlie, good morning to you. it sounds like science fiction. bringing minds together, pulling pran power to make a super brain. seems hard to believe until you see it up close. meet mango the monkey and his problem-solving partner romeo. inside this lab at duke university, both primates are currently separated physically but will soon be connected mentally. signals from their brains will be merged. the result of research inside the lab? >> i dream about this many years ago. >> reporter: the doctor had made studying the brain his life's mission. it was his neurological work with rats that first gained widespread attention.
8:20 am
then he taught primates how to move wheelchairs and exoskeletons using only their minds. >> that led to trying to merge multiple brains. >> we need to create a paradigm. once we include this concept of linking brains to machines. >> has anybody sid can't do this? >> quote impossible? we got back reviews from our colleagues some saying we needed some help like the psychiatric variety. >> they said you're not doing work on other people's brains, you need to do work on your own? >> yes, to fix myself, yes. >> one word that comes to mind is mad. mad scientist. >> reporter: dr. john sampson the chair of neurosurgery at duke. >> what he does is seemingly crazy until you talk with him and you think about it enough and you suddenly understand that he has a deep understanding of not just how the brain works but how the whole nervous system works. >> reporter: this is what he and his colleagues came up with.
8:21 am
they put ultrathin flexible fillaments into the brain's tissue. >> this is the magic. >> it's like little whiskers. >> the diameter of a hair. we can put them in different lengths. so we record a volume of pran tissue. >> reporter: the fillaments pick up electrical activity of living brain cells, hundreds if not thousands, which are communicated to a computer. then as we watched, merged together. their combined brain signals are moving these avatar hands to touch the targets. >> so we're looking at what seems to be one body there, but it's actually two brains? >> yes. >> what do you do call this? >> i call this a brain net. connecting multiple brains to achieve a common goal. >> we see this in nature a lot. flocks of birds, herd of cattle. school of fish. that's in nature. is that what you are from a sense creating in a lab? >> to some degree we want to
8:22 am
understand how these work together and generate social interactions. >> are the monkeys hurt? >> no, not at all. they live many, many years, they're very playful because they are doing some things that no primate ever thought they could do. >> reporter: the doctor says the implications are enormous. if the brain signals of primates can help other primates in a controlled environment, could a healthy human brain help heal a damaged human brain? the goal is potentially to help someone paralyzed walk again? >> yes, we start with spinal cord injury. we are hopeful that this could be used for other disorders, neurological disorders like strokes and in some cases parkinson's disease. >> reporter: work he has already put to the test. drft here he and a team healed the mind of a 29-year-old paraplegic to a robotic skeleton, by simply thinking about it. she delivered the world cup opening kick. >> she actually felt the impact.
8:23 am
he had the clear sensation that he actually kicked the ball. it is important that the patients feel the ground. feel they are doing that by themselves and have a sensation that is realistic. >> i think the potential that the doctor is bringing to the field is the understanding that we are not limited in ourd minds. our body is what's limiting us. there really are almost no limits to what a single human brain can do or what several brains could do together. >> we are just starting to realize how complex it is, how, know 100 billion neurons interact to create what we ka ul the human condition. this is the big challenge. >> 100 billion neurons, that's exactly what we have in our brains. three brains already are working together. he hopes to include many, many more. the hope is in the very near future this brain net research can help disabled human
8:24 am
patients. that's a lot of neurons. >> it is, indeed. it seems like it's so unlimited in which the possibilities are. >> you talk about that many neurons, we're talking about tapping into hundreds or thousands of them. imagine who could be next. >> i wonder, does everybody have 1 hunt. billion neurons? they're missing a couple. >> more. >> not naming any names. it is fascinating what you are doing. >> what their needs are. >> that is awesome. >> anybody we know? >> we can have a blind note going on in the morning. pushing the limits takes you for a loop. go through a tube in supersonic speed. they hope to turn elon musk vision into reality. that's something to look forward to. that's coming out tomorrow. on our snapchat account, we
